Popups and food trucks often provide communities and cities with food they would otherwise have not experienced. Some popup owners have no interest in expanding to a full brick-and-mortar and food trucks are much more affordable ways for business owners to serve their food. Brian Addison and Sarah Bennett sit down with Jairo Bogarín of Hamburgers Nice, a breakfast burger popup at Zaferia’s Commodity space, to discuss this, along with the intimate ties this type of food has in Wilmington, San Pedro, and SoCal as a whole.
